Introduction to Job Methods
Job Methods (JM) institutionalizes “What If?”
JM trains supervisors, team leaders and workers to discover and develop new ways for improving how work gets done. Results for successful JM programming include higher productivity, streamlined processes, and waste and error reduction. Another key benefit: These ideas don’t rely on adding capital goods. Job Methods emphasizes improvements from the people, procedures, machinery and materials already in place.
JM trains your people how to break down jobs into their constituent components. Every detail is questioned in a systematic manner to generate ideas for improvement. New methods are developed by eliminating, combining, rearranging and simplifying details in the process.
Job Methods enhances most team-based continuous improvement programs by delivering a high volume of small incremental improvements.
Our End-to-End programming assures adoption and continuation of JM’s benefits. Your TWI Institute coach will meet with management, managers, trainers, supervisors and team leaders to observe your TWI JM implementation. Your coach will gauge progress, identify problems, suggest solutions and help realign goals.
Job Methods, as is the case with all TWI Institute programs, is focused on supervisors, team leaders and the workers themselves. JM provides a proven and reliable system for getting the most from manpower, machines and materials you have on hand.

We start with an assessment and provide tailored recommendations for your workers and your workplace. KPIs are set, a communication strategy is planned and workforce orientation begins.
Supervisors, team leaders and those who direct the work of others attend, participate and learn in our cornerstone programs: TWI, Kata and Standardized Work.
We work with you to plan a pilot program and teams begin to learn by doing. Through workplace practice and coaching, we help students accept the ideas and put them to work. We’re with you through every step of the journey.
We assess learning, validate pilot results, incorporate skills into routines, evaluate practices and culture, and measure performance against KPIs.
We execute worker and workplace certifications, including TWI Certification (student and trainer), Kata Certification (student and trainer) Train-the-Trainer Certification, and TWI:2018 Certification.
We stay connected with planned reassessments, KPI checks, remedial coaching, and re-certifications to protect and grow your return on investment.
